EPA chief Scott Pruitt under fire for excessive spending, travel

03:16

Scott Pruitt, Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, has been in headlines the last few days over his reportedly excessive spending on travel and living arrangements. The Washington Post's senior national affairs correspondent, Juliet Eilperin, shared her new piece: "Pruitt raised the idea of leasing a private jet to accommodate his travel needs... some of his own top aides decided this wasn't a good idea," adding, "In regards to condo rental, it was a highly unusual arrangement... it wasn't approved ahead of time".
